06/21/2002 Archived Entry: "EXPERT MOUSE!!!"

Turned in my job applications today. Although, I don't think it looks too good for most stores, I have some hope. Cambridge Soundworks said that I could "follow up" on my application tomorrow. I'm not sure what exactly that means, but I'll be doing just that. Wish me luck.

What really annoys me is how employers never really figure in how much an employee wants to work for their store. I really wanted to work for Gamestop, as it is a big game store and it's stuff is slightly cheaper than Electronics Boutique. Well, when I asked for an application, they told me that they didn't need help. What peeves me is that I am extremely willing to work there and I'd be an asset to the store, as I have tons of gaming knowledge and experience. I'm willing to bet money that the employees I see working there right now haven't been gaming as long as I have (13 years) and/or know anywhere near as much as I know about the merchandise. That pisses me off. Gwar!

I made a stop by Fry's Electronics earlier. I finally took the plunge and shelled out the $100 for an Expert Mouse Pro. Now this is a nice~ trackball. I can't tell you how good this thing feels, with it's billiard ball sized trackball and all. Now I understand why these things are so popular with them graphic designers. It's by far the finest input device I've ever worked with. Can't wait to put this thing through its paces in Photoshop. I'm a happy camper. ^_^

Thanks everyone for the cheering up and such. I'm alright now. I'm actually fine most of the time. Occasionally, I do have them somber moments though. It's just... it's just that it's tough being single when you're a hopeless romantic. When you want some kind of romance in your life and there's nothing. *sigh* Yes, that's generally the cause of my somberness. Bah... I need a girl....

Danny:
o_O That has got to be the best (or should I say worst) drunken babbling I've yet seen. Good job...?

Riku:
Thanks for trying to cheer me up. ^_^ Thanks for the thought.

Yah! School's over for you! Be happy. Be relieved. Have a great summer. ^_^ You deserve it.

Congradulations on getting Parallel Dreams off hiatus! Another brilliant Peeping P! layout. *coughyourlayoutsarebetterthanminecough* Good job there. *pat pat* ^_^

Mizuki:
Thanks for trying to help me with "Last Regrets" lyrics. ^_^ I should have mentioned that I wanted translations too, but I guess I just forgot. Oh well... I already got them, so don't worry, ok?

Full Metal Panic? It's about this one high school aged boy by the name of Sousuke. He's a sergent in some kind of military organization called "Mithril." He gets assigned to guard over this girl, Chidori, for some reason and from there, you get some high school drama stuff with war drama thrown in. It's pretty darn interesting. In the beginning it's a lot of school drama, but towards the end, it's a lot more war drama. Quite entertaining. I enjoy watching it.

Steph:
Nice new layout there. Sanzo's cool. ^_^

That sucks about what happened to Clow Genesis. That hacker is just horrible. Gwar! I just feel sorry for those who happened to access it during that time and the peoples who might want to access it now. Oh well... your decision was a good one. I respect it.

Sawa:
WHAT!?! Nunames is offering a free domain to current .nu name holders!?! I need to think of a domain to claim fast....

Gomaki:
You have quite the interesting layout there. ^_^; It's really cute. ^_^

Tichan:
Thanks for trying to cheer me up. Oh, and the Nako cel really helped. ^_^

NAKO!!! ^_^

Ehh...don't worry Dave-kun! I'm sure you'll find your destined one very sooner or later *is one of the people who believe that there's one true love for everybody*!

About nunames, did you receive an email from them last week? Apparently if you didn't register your .nu from nunames directly, you're not part of the free offer. XP

Whoa, that expert mouse pro of yours sounds wicked! ^_~

[hahaha... gomenne! this was just so tempting when i read that last line in your entry. xD forgive me nyo~! you can thwap me if you want. ^^;;]

Yo, I'm internationally known on the microphone
I got it all, but I really need a wife at home
I don't really like the zone, never spend the night alone
I got a few, you would like to bone
But, chicks that romance me, don't tickle my fancy
Oh and Tiffany, Nancy; that's not what my plans be
I need a girl that could stand me, raise me a family
Go to trips at the Lancy, trip to the Grammy's cause
Most of these girls be confusin me
I don't know if they really love me or they usin me
Maybe it's the money, or maybe you ain't used to me
Cause you was depressed and now you abusin me
That's why I need me a girl that be true to me
Know bout the game, and know how to do to me
Without a girl on my side, shit I ruin me
Forget the word, girl, it's just you and me

I need a girl to ride, ride, ride
I need a girl to make my wife
I need a girl to be mine oh mine
I need a girl in my life
I need a girl to ride, ride, ride
I need a girl to be my wife
Nobody else cuz she's all mine
I need a girl in my life

yupyup... this summer should be interesting. xD i'm tutoring half the time... visiting colleges... and working @ an engineering place//LA times the other half of the time. (that is, IF i can find a way to beg the LA times to let me work for them as a student or something. ^^;; journalism sounds like fun...) and thanks for the comments! *cough* nomylayoutsarenotbetterthanyourssoNYAH! *un-cough* hahaha!!! nyuu... get tsubasa.nu up sometime, ne? it's been... blank. *lol* j'p j'p, no rush. but um... is the free .nu thing really true?!?!?! *_* waiii... i wish i had a .nu domain now. it'd make hosting for my sites so much easier. i wouldn't have to leech off of other people. kukuku -.-;; oh well, g'luck with that! ^_~

Good luck with that job interview follow up... and gar... I hope things start to get better for you.

Thanks so much for plugging me btw... ^_^ and for your concern with me and Clow Genesis and so on... thank you... it really means a lot. Like you said, its awful that all those people had to see something like that... and at that time I couldn't do anything about it because I was at school. Gar... Anyway... I'm feeling better now, thanks to people like you. I really appreciate it.
